As I’m moving to a different city, I’d like to get rid of my car. My car 1993 Ford Escort, 3-door hathback, is still drivable because I do drive it every day. But, it has some problems – major and minor – namely, side brake almost broken, weak transmission, and other miscellaneous internal problems (minor though). Exterior-wise, there is a bump on the side from hitting deer, driver side’s door (lock hole) doesn’t work, back mirror is torn apart, and side mirror’s smashed. I believe it’s drivable with some repair (brake and transmission). But, I’m not sure, ethically, if I should sell my car to someone as a “drivable car” I do not want to mislead anyone… What do you think??

    Don’t say it’s drivable when you feel you might be misleading potential buyers. List the problems, as well as the positive things about the car, if any, and state your price.

    Just describe the car just like you have above. Its fine to say its drivable because it is.

    Just make sure that you write AS-IS in big letters on the bill of sale. Also, for further protection, list every problem you know of on the bill of sale.

    Its not like anyone is going to pay much anyway.

    What is it ? A $300 car ?

    you’re better off selling it to a junk yard..the one i dumped mines at said they would pay $700 as long as it started.
